In order to maintain the rapidly growing Vandoren Regional Artist (VRA) program, Vandoren has created a new full-time position, hiring bass clarinetist Rebecca Scholldorf as the VRA administrator.

Since its launch in the summer of 2015, the Vandoren Regional Artist program has been a huge success with band directors and school music dealers across the country. As a result of this success, the program has more than doubled in size to include more than 30 regional artists nationwide.

“We recognized early on that in order to maintain the quick success and rapid growth of this program, it would require a dedicated staff member to tend to its daily requirements,” commented Michael Fenoglio, Vandoren product specialist. “After getting to know Rebecca through her internship here at DANSR, we knew she would be the perfect person to keep this program on track and moving forward.”

All Vandoren Regional Artists are experienced educators able to customize clinics to suit the unique needs of teachers and students. VRA clinics are completely free of charge and can cover a wide variety of topics including music and instrument fundamentals, ensemble or section playing, jazz improvisation, reed and mouthpiece selection, and more. Vandoren mouthpieces, ligatures, and reed samples are available for all clinics so that both teachers and students are able to personally experience the benefits of top-of-the-line, professional equipment.
